343 Industries, the studio currently behind the development of the latest Halo installment, has issued new information regarding its beta.

The new information came through a tweet by John Junyszek, the studio's community manager, published via his professional profile on Wednesday, June 30. In it, he describes exactly what players will need to do in order to participate—as well as what they can expect in a follow-up reply.

Here's our breakdown of the latest information Halo fans need to know.

Halo Infinite Beta Information Update

According to Junyszek, details for the Halo Infinite multiplayer technical previews will be published "ahead of time." They aren't meant to be a surprise mad-grab for players. However, anyone who wishes to participate will need to be a registered Halo Insider. Only those known to the service will receive potentially access to the previews.

Additionally, he wrote, the team is "constantly evaluating the flighting build" in the same way they do with MCC flights. Its precise timing relies on development realities—meaning the time frame of the game's development and when the team believes it will be ready enough.

"Once we have a firm date locked in, we'll let you know," he wrote.

In a blog post initially published on July 23, 2020, Chris Lee, 343 studio head, noted that the team will be "scaling back" its flight plans due to the circumstances surrounding the COVD-19 pandemic. Now with the majority of the crisis seemingly at bay, it appears those plans can pick back up again.
